*** MonEglise.net is evolving ***

It is with joy that I announce the launch of the new version of MonEglise.net.  Accessible to all, this website is one of the major tools developed by Top Chretien’s team to proclaim the Gospel on the Internet. The goal is to bring the church to  Internet users so they say, “if that’s the church, I want MY church!”

The novelty is that live services will be available on mobile phones and tablets. The team is determined to develop means that meet the needs of Internet users today.

To fit the mobile format, the length of programs has changed: they will last fourteen minutes instead of forty-five. Now you can watch the message directly while on public transportation or on a break (thanks to the video podcasts)! This new version has brought about other changes available as of Sunday, June 5 at 8 h 00 (France time). Be curious!

We know the impact that MonEglise.net has on people’s lives and hearts. Many stories, some more amazing than others, encourage us each day. Here’s an example:

Testimony of an Internet user on MonEglise.net:

“Hello, I want to share my testimony with you. For over a year I suffered terrible back pain; it was so painful that I could not remain standing longer than five minutes. Last night, I happened upon one of the sermons on MonEglise.net “How to get out of failure, ” and at the end of the girl’s testimony, I prayed with faith. I assure you that God has completely healed me, and now I no longer have back pain. Glory to God and thank you for your work … May God bless you.”

I invite you to encourage people around you who have no church or who no longer have one to visit the website. The lives of so many Internet users have been changed; it is also possible for your family, your friends, your colleagues! We know that God works through the Internet, and we want him to act on your behalf, too.

I want to sincerely thank the Top donors, without whom projects like this one would not be possible. MonEglise.net studios were installed directly on the premises that we recently acquired through donations. Let all the glory be to God who continues to inspire us and allows us to implement all these projects. I sincerely believe he blesses a hundredfold our generous donors, especially by changed lives, and that makes me happy!

I speak for the whole team by saying that you are on our hearts, and we have high hopes for the impact of this new version of MonEglise.net.

Together for changed lives,

Eric Célérier

PS: What do you think of this new project? I look forward to your feedback!

*** Should we discontinue TopInfo? ***

As you must know, the web portal TopChrétien offers various services such as TopMessages, its well-known Thought for the Day, TopFamily, TopTv, TopBible, etc. The main purpose of each one of these sections is to encourage Christians in their relationship with God.

TopInfo is one of the sections that attracts the most visitors. Its objective is to inform. Up to now, we have gathered information and then proposed the news that seems pertinent and interesting to the visitors of our portal. Every day thousands of people go to TopInfo and many comment on the different articles.

However, in the history of TopChrétien, I noticed that our problems often come from this section. For example, certain subjects (homosexuality, abortion, Islam, ecumenism, politics, …) regularly create controversy. In addition, we sometimes get complaints from disgruntled visitors. Some Christians do not understand why we have released this or that information and form a negative opinion of TopChétien through the narrow lens of one single article.

Moreover, following the dissemination of information from a Jewish Agency considered defamatory, we lost a lawsuit against an Islamic association, and we were forced to pay 15,000 € in damages and interest. It is the only lawsuit that we have suffered in the space of ten years, but logically, it has caused some changes in how we work.

Finally, after years of loyal service, Didier Biava, – who insured the information gathering – preferred to discontinue this service to focus on our evangelism website, ConnaitreDieu.com (KnowingGod.net). A big thank you to Didier for all those years of dedicated service to Internet users.

You probably now understand better the title of this blog! Should we discontinue TopInfo?

Personally, I see three options:

1 / Discontinue TopInfo, despite the large number of visitors, considering that this service no longer has its place in TopChrétien.

2 / Limit TopInfo to a feed aggregate (like Google News). TopInfo would automatically retransmit information from other Christian news sites.

3 / Transform TopInfo, so that the service is more consistent with the overall vision of TopChrétien: evangelism, encouragement, interaction and communication.

What do you think? The TopChrétien Team and I would love to hear your opinions and ideas. Tell us which option you prefer and why.

Together for changed lives,

Your friend, Eric
